ALBUM REVIEW: 'Modern Ruin' by Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes

Think of someone who’s used raw talent to get to where they are today; odds are, Frank Carter is better than 95% of them.

If you chose to see 2014’s Business in the Front, Party in the Back as a mission statement, that pop-punk can be cleverer and more demanding of itself, then you will also see… 284 more words

ALBUM REVIEW: 'Afterthoughts' by Greywind

With the amount that their name has been thrown around lately, you’d find it difficult to believe that Afterthoughts is Greywind’s first proper release.

ALBUM REVIEW: 'Ambitions' by One Ok Rock

Minds tend to jump straight to the Western world when discussing rock music. Of course that can’t usually be helped, but bands like Japan’s One Ok Rock are a welcome reminder to broaden our horizons when it comes to searching for our new favourite artists. 455 more words


Emma Ruth Rundle - "Marked For Death" Review

Towards the back-end of 2016 I stumbled across several new artists that blew me away and Emma Ruth Rundle was one of them. She’s been making music for many years but her unique brand of dark guitar driven experimental rock drew me in immediately on first listen and has only grown in intensity since. 512 more words
